Released on 'continental drifters' (1995)

In the back of the dimly lit room
Stands a woman alone or so you'd assume
But there to her right, all through the night
Stands her invisible boyfriend.

I watch her turn and then smile at the air
Half way expectin' to see him right there
And when he's not her face just drops
Meet the invisible boyfriend.

The man of her dreams has returned to her dreams
But she's by herself or so it would seem
To a casual observer like I am.

Ask her a question, she'll answer in kind
But all would agree she's got more on her mind
Look in her eyes, watch how she tries
To hold herself back from cryin'.

Left with a memory and time on her hands
Left to a lifetime of unfinished plans
Left all alone by the one very man
Who would never have left her alone.

Sometimes I think I can see him myself
With his arms wrapped around her with picture of health
Grinnin' at her just as they were
Before the impossible happened.

The man of her dreams has returned to her dreams
But she's by herself or so it would seem
To a casual observer like I am.

But all that I know is the pains won't go by
By the days and the weeks and the months since he died
She starts to leave and there by her side
Goes the invisible boyfriend.

God, I wish I had known him
He's the invisible boyfriend.
